Matcha Green Tea Powder

Matcha is a high quality, finely milled Japanese green tea powder, sometimes referred to as "the mother of all green tea." In the 12th century the Zen Priest Esai introduced the tea plant to Japan after a pilgrimage to China. Japanese Buddhists embraced the method of drinking whisked, powdered tea, even incorporating it into their traditional Chanoyu ritual. 800 years later, Zen Buddhist monks are still using Matcha green tea as a drink to simulate presence of mind, mental alertness, and a calm meditative state. Consumed today for ritual, health benefits, caffeine, or simply flavor, Matcha's invigorating effects have reached all areas of the globe. 

Production
Matcha is derived from green Japanese tea leaves that have been shade grown for about 3 weeks before harvesting to slow growth and increase amino acids. Only the top buds (the highest quality) are carefully picked, dried and then slowly stone ground into an ultra fine, jade green powder. High quality organic matcha has the perfect balance of natural sweetness with savory (derived from the amino acid, L-theanine) and slight astringency due to the presence of natural tea Catechins.

Health Benefits
Matcha drinkers receive the full nutritional benefits by drinking the whole tea leaf. This is the main difference between herbal Matcha powder and all other tea. The health benefits of Matcha exceed those of regular green tea with elevated levels of antioxidants and L-theanine, which promotes the production of alpha waves in the brain to give you a calming energy boost.
